The coffee maker in the honeymoon suite stopped working on Tuesday morning and after contacting the staff at the front desk, talked to the maid that cleaned our room and emailing the property I was assured it would be taken care of. Not taken care of when we left on Saturday morning. Transportation is quite expensive through the resort and the front desk says they will check on taxi rates but never seem to get around to checking.

The trails, waterfalls & activities were great. This hotel wasn't what we were expecting. The grounds are very large. Website says you can walk to 6 water falls. Only one is within walking distance of 3km. The others are 5 & 6Km away as well as the hot Springs so you have to drive or take a shuttle and be on their timing. Food was ok, very Americanized. The service was poor. Butterfly garden advertised but there wasn't one.

I wish I would have stayed longer. The facilities were amazing with plenty to see and do on site. The restaurant was also top notch and the staff were friendly and efficient. I would include Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin on anyone’s travel plans without any hesitations.
